How to Educate and Introduce Students to Solar:

Silicon Solar’s educational kits are a great way to introduce students to solar power, motors, mechanics, direct current electricity, and even electrician work in the case of our Build-Your-Own-Solar-Panel Kit.

Our society today is infatuated with portable consumer electronics.  Kids can’t seem to put down their cell phones and other handheld devices. Show them that they can charge all of these devices via solar power! Silicon Solar carries several mobile device solar battery chargers which would be perfect to educate our future generations about how cool solar can be.

Host a solar science fair! This idea not only works for schools, but also for youth groups, boy scouts, girl scouts, and 4-H. It’s a great way for a student to learn about solar energy in detail and give the rest of their classmates or peers an overview. THE FOUNDERS OF SILICON SOLAR STARTED THE COMPANY BECAUSE THEIR INTEREST IN SOLAR APPLICATIONS AND INNOVATION WERE SPARKED BY A HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE FAIR!!! So who knows, maybe you’ll inspire a career!

Education is a key element to a sustainable future.  Both solar photovoltaic and solar thermal energy systems not only provide clean renewable energy, but also save end-users thousands of dollars on utility costs providing a net savings over the life of each system.  Most people in the United States could benefit economically from going solar, but the percentage of energy in this country that comes from solar power comprises only a tiny fraction of the nation’s total energy use.  If the almost everyone could benefit economically as well as environmentally from going solar, then why aren’t more people installing solar renewable energy systems? The answer is a lack of education.  Silicon Solar carries an assortment of books and education kits hoping to arm the masses with valuable information.  The more solar models and demo kits we can get into schools, the better.  If we can educate the next generation about the value and benefits of solar energy, it will only encourage the acceptance and proliferation of solar technologies making us a stronger nation, and a better world.
